This museum is a must stop for anyone interested in the Indian culture. The museum is packed full of interesting artifacts and if you are fortunate enough to visit during the performances, the kids who perform are amazing. As the "story" unfolds and the various dances are performed, it is a moving experience. Will be back again!

This is a great Indian art museum and has all kinds of art that tells about Native Americans whether it be oil, beadwork, Kachina or jewelry. Not a lot of reading compared to other museums. This is worth your time

This is not only a museum full of Native American and southwest artifacts but it is a place that seeks to preserve the history and traditions of native peoples from all over the US.

We happen to be in town when they were having their summer pageant, The Song of the Eagle. We called and purchased tickets for the show. The museum is small and even for the most interested museum goers, would probably take no more than 30 minutes to an hour to tour the entire location but it was still very interesting... More

Our Girl Scouts really enjoyed looking at all the exhibits. The giant bear, the artifacts and gift shop were a big hit

This is a small but important museum about the First People that lived in the area for hundreds of years. The art, photos, animals and other artifacts are interesting for all ages. We even had the opportunity to watch a teacher with a huge drum instruct students in the art of an American Indian dance.

We were not fortunate enough to be in town during one of the shows they present, but we will return! This beautiful museum is filled with art and artifacts relating to the tribes of the area. If you only see one museum related to native americans, this is the one. They have an all volunteer staff, and it shows in... More

We've lived in the area almost 4 years now and last night was the first time we had seen the dancers. We had been to the museum, which by itself is a worthy experience. The murals and art collection; the artifacts and displays tell a very simple story of the southern plains and southwest native people. Then there is are... More

We really enjoyed visiting this museum with our RV Club. They have a very nice gift shop in addition to the very interesting museum. We didn't do the meal they offer and didn't get to see the Indian dance performance but we plan to go back later for that when time permits. Must make reservations for the meal.
